Exploring Our Dreams : The Science and the Potential for Self-Discovery Paperback / softback
If you are interested-even curious about your nightly dreams and you would like to know what researchers from psychology and neuroscience can now tell us about dreams, this is your book.
The author, a dream researcher himself, has published many studies on dreams and has been a practicing psychotherapist as well. Open the book and you will see that it is very readable.
The science is presented in a non-technical question-and-answer format.
Want to know about dreaming in color, what affects your recall of dreams, what most people dream about, those puzzling, sometimes troubling recurrent dreams, the experience of lucid dreaming, or the new advances in the treatment of nightmares?
It's all in here, along with a discussion of the approaches that have been used to try to interpret dreams-- from the ancient Assyrian dictionaries uncovered by archaeologists to modern dream dictionaries, to the free association technique of Sigmund Freud, the different approach offered by Carl Jung and the explorations of the author in using real incidents that are brought to mind by dreams, probing their meaning to the individual in an objective way-a technique that has been successfully used in research studies.
